  • The best thing about “X-Men: First Class” is that no 3-D glasses are necessary. The director, Matthew Vaughn, understands every movie doesn’t work in 3-D. In fact I read he thinks “Avatar” has been the only movie released that really works in 3-D and the rest are, well, I can’t use the word he said, but you get the point.
